Skin care brand Circadia has announced that it's funding the Sage Michaela Lucas Timing is Everything Scholarship through Beauty Changes Lives. The $50,000 scholarship awards tuition funding to support biracial, indigenous and persons of color (BIPOC) pursuing a career in professional esthetics.
The scholarship competition will begin accepting applications in January 2021, awarding two spring and three fall scholarships annually through 2022, for $5,000 each. Scholarship applicants are required to submit a three to five minute video expressing why they seek to enter the esthetics industry and how they aim to celebrate diversity and inclusivity in their career.
“Traveling around the U.S. as an educator, it became clear to me that some esthetic students were at a disadvantage based on educational resources in their communities,” says Circadia CEO Michael Pugliese. “Timing is everything in skin care, and early access to quality education can set students up for lifetime success.”
